Tough vote for me with Turay and Lewis both could explode on the 

defensive line. Hines will make a jump but like Chloe said, there are extra talented mouths to feed on offense.

 

Cain was essentially red shirted last year and Fountain has caught

some attention early this year so both guys are wild cards at this 

point.

I think Cain is going to be better than what people are expecting.  I believe it was Kevin Bowen or Holder I listened to who also said Reich had a lot of praise for Fountain during OTAs. But he said Fountain has to contribute on special teams.

Another guy who I want to mention here for a good sophomore campaign may be Jihad Ward.  I think he is going to make some noise at the 3 Tech and I also think he is a good enough athlete to get some sacks of the edge at DE.

He is gonna be good if he can stay on the field.

Well Cain is currently sitting at zero so anything he produces will be considered a huge leap from last year. But considering that's kind of a cop-out answer, I'll go with Turay. He just has unteachable physical tools and more importantly seems to be putting in the work.

I think he could be molded into a decent edge rusher on top of what he does on the interior.

Grover Stewart may be the only tackle on the roster that can't 

play edge.

May be able to play some 3 Tech at some point.  I know he was a big pass rusher from the interior at Albany State.  We shall see what happens.

I'll take 3 from the 2018 class....    all lineman....   all in the 2nd round.

 

Smith, Turay and Lewis.     With Turay perhaps being the most important.   Then Smith and then Lewis.      If those guys can raise their game to be more serious and steady contributors,  then the 2019 Colts will really improve.

 

Here's hoping....

Kemoko Turay - if he's behind Houston, not betting on him. If he moves behind Sheard, then I'd feel better.

 

Tyquan Lewis - if he's really moving inside, I just don't see him playing early downs unless he can put on healthy weight.

 

Nehiem Hines - he'll improve and be a more "planned" part of the O, but we have a lot of weapons.

 

Daurice Fountain - depends where they put him. If they put him at slot or Z, he'll be competing for spot with Rogers. If they put him at X, he'll be competing for a spot with Pascal. I think he stands a better shot vs Pascal.

 

Deon Cain - DC is the front runner IMO. Chip on his shoulder, but we really need a prototype X, and he could be it if he returns to form.

 

Matthew Adams - he's behind Leonard. Going to be hard.

 

Zaire Franklin - he plays SAM, which we don't use that much. And could be competing with Banogu....

I voted for Cain, but don't count out Jordan Wilkins.  I know RB is a little crowded, & Mack appears to be the man, but I really like the way Wilkins runs.  

I forgot to add Wilkins in the poll, he may be a natural for 

the addition of the stretch play this season.

Fountain all the way! 

I’m going Fountain since he only played in 1 game right? Had 1 pass attempt and dropped it so if he catches 2 balls this year, he is already 200% above his stats last season lol. If Fountain makes it through to final roster, I think he has that chance to show what CB said needed to get unlocked from him over time. 

 

Id make the other option Turay based on his offseason workouts. Sounds like this kid has stayed behind to 100% work on his craft and hone the skill set he has already. 

 

Hines seems to have already had one heck of a output in his first year and the fact that they added in all the new offensive infusions, I can’t see them isolating as much with Hines as the single outlet player. I see Funch, Campbell, Doyle, Cain and others being equally as opportunistic in outlet options. Add in that CB and Reich want to increase the running abilities, and that just screams Hines role gets diminished a bit.

Yeah I took that cop-out haha. But if I hadn't have chose Cain, I would've chosen Turay

    • Are you serious right now? Do you honestly think the Chargers would trade Herbert right now today for Buckner, Pittman and Taylor? Not in a million years. It sounds like you're suggesting that price would be too high for the Colts to pay?   Did you see what it took to get Matt Stafford? Do you hear what it would take to get Watson or Wilson? The entire NFL knows what half of this forum doesn't seem to understand - a franchise QB is worth whatever it costs to get them and you get them whenever you can. You know the best way not to give up 3 firsts and 2 seconds for Watson? Draft one yourself. Ballard knew 1000000% that Luck wasn't coming back last year and you're happy that he got a DT, RB, and WR instead of a franchise QB? If Ballard thinks a team will win a Super Bowl with average QB play that's supported by an All Pro DT he's wrong and so are you if you think average QB's win Super Bowls.    Its also so funny to me that in this SPECIFIC thread I hear nonstop that Grigson only got good results because he drafted a great QB. His record and playoff wins dont count because he drafted a great QB. Then why aren't you and everyone else on this forum destroying Ballard for NOT drafting a great QB? Heck that's all it takes right, just ask Grigson?  
    • Restructures in this case would just convert salary into bonus, which reduces the player's cap hit in the current season. The player gets the same amount of money that season, he just gets some bonus money sooner. This isn't something players have a problem with.  
    • At this time, I would too.   But it isn't as much of a gamble now.  Would you have bee fine with the same trade but drafting Trubisky, who was also mocked to go in the later half of the top 10.  
    • I don't think signing average pass rushers to replace our average pass rushers will raise our pass rush floor. If we're going to sign someone, I'd want them to have the potential to be better than the guys we already have.    I'm almost ready to embrace your approach -- improve the secondary and hope it helps contain good passing attacks, while giving the pass rush a little more time to get home. And focus on the offense this offseason. That might put the pass rush in more favorable situations.    Ideally, that's not how I would build my team, but I don't see a lot of pass rush help coming in FA this year. I think we could add a good WR and TE, and if Wentz can still play, our offense could be top five. And keep Rhodes and add another corner, and I think the defense can maintain 10-15ish range.     That's why you pay Buckner $21m/year. He's the difference maker. You don't pay Lawson big money to be the beneficiary of Buckner's great play, IMO.
